Our deepest and most sincere condolences go out to all those who were affected by the horrific tragedy that occurred in Boston this past week. Let us pray for all those who were wounded and need healing. May G’d protect us from all evil and bless us with revealed goodness.

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Hanoch and Tzivie Hecht


Short Thought


Love your fellow as yourself (19:18)

The three loves–love of G-d, love of Torah and love of one’s fellow–are one. One cannot differentiate between them, for they are of a single essence. And since they are of a single essence, each one embodies all three.

So if you see a person who has a love of G-d but lacks a love of Torah and a love of his fellow, you must tell him that his love of G-d is incomplete. And if you see a person who has only a love for his fellow, you must strive to bring him to a love of Torah and a love of G-d–that his love toward his fellows should not only be expressed in providing bread for the hungry and water for the thirsty, but also to bring them close to Torah and to G-d.

When we will have the three loves together, we will achieve the Redemption. For just as this last Exile was caused by a lack of brotherly love, so shall the final and immediate Redemption be achieved by love for one’s fellow.

(From the words spoken by the Lubavitcher Rebbe immediately following his formal acceptance of the leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch in 1951)











One day a gorilla escaped from the zoo, prompting a huge search of the district and appeals on radio, television and in the newspapers.

He was finally discovered a few days later in the city library where zoo officials found him sitting at a desk in the reading room with two books spread out in front of him.

The gorilla was deep in concentration. One book was the Bible; the other was written by Charles Darwin.

The zoo keepers asked the gorilla what he was doing. The gorilla replied: “I’m trying to figure out whether I am my brother’s keeper or my keeper’s brother.”
